    Default dirt under screen and wont click

    I was sandblasting and got sand in every nook and cranny of my clothes. Now half my screen won't click. Do I have to completly dissasemble my storm or is there an easier way?

    I'm no pro, but I can't see any other way. If the sand is in there, trying something like using compressed air may only push it in further. I'd suggest looking for a detailed guide (preferably with pictures), some prayer beads, good luck, and a some fine tools. Of course, you'd void your warranty, but they wouldn't replace it anyway (I think so, at least).

    From seeing pics of the Storm, it doesn't seem like disassembling it would cause any permanent damage, as long as you know what you're doing and don't damage any parts.

    They may replace it if its under warranty still.

    If he's got sand in it, they'll tag him for user fault.

    Radio Shack has a small USB mini vacuum on their website that may be helpful (it's currently out-of-stock, but I'm sure you can find something similar at another electronics/computer store).

    Not sure if this will get all of it out but go to Youtube and search for the tutorial of removing the Storm's screen and cleaning out the dust underneath .... I did it and it worked pretty well and was not difficult
